Book Art INSET

Books Art is a fantastic strategy to showcase writing across the whole curriculum.  Children create a detailed book by folding, cutting and sticking different origami style inserts planned to match the requirements of a specific Scheme of Work.  


Once the book skeleton has been created, the children are then able to write using the origami pages.  Children are publishing each piece of work they have written within their Book Art - which adds an extra purpose for writing.  Writing both in English and English across the Curriculum can be taught using Book Art.


Mr Frank Driessen visited School this evening to lead staff on the second part of our Book Art training.  Frank is a former Headteacher and now works with Liverpool Diocese to share the wonders of Book Art across the North West.  Staff this evening have prepared Book Art plans for their year group.  Ask your children how they are using Book Art during the next term in School.
